Animal Shelter Volunteers of Texas: Emergency Medical Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The money was used to repair a broken leg (FX, Lg Long Bone, Plate) on Buddy, a German shepherd mix.

The grant helped Animal Shelter Volunteers of Texas to provide needed surgery to fix Buddy's broken leg, which was causing him pain and preventing him from being adopted, as most adopters are unlikely to be able to afford the expense of surgery. This surgery allowed Buddy to successfully find an adoptive home.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Buddy, a 4-month-old German shepherd mix, came to ASVT’s attention after he was hit by a car. A community member found Buddy injured and contacted ASVT for assistance. He had suffered a broken leg and required surgery to put a plate in his leg. ASVT provided medical care, boarding, and foster care and then transported Buddy to find his forever home in Iowa. He has since been adopted and is much-loved by his new family.
